7:07 am
rise around the country. when people look at my record of job creation in washington, job in ohio, bringing people together, reminding people we're americans before we're republicans and democratsng common sense solutions, we've been able to do well. we have a ways to go, to make sure we're going to be traveling everywhere. we'll have a national i'll be the nominee. >> i'll ask you about that. i swore there would be no math, but if you win every delegate from here on out, youeet the magic number of 1,237, which means it would have to be the result of a contested convention. can you explain to people who support you, how to pull that off? >> nobody is going to get enough delegates to win at the convention. everyone is going to fall short. that was what was so big about ohio. for those people that wanted to have some sort of common sense in this election,
7:08 am
could raise the bar, you know, i take the low road to the highest office. if you see these guys fighting on the stage, it was absolutely unbelievable, what was going nobody is going to have enough delegates. when we get there, the delegates will have to figure out, number one, who can run the country, and, three, who can win. >> nobody is going to have the required number of delegates, that's your prediction. one person who, can get the required number of delegates, and that's donald trump. let me ask you this way: would you be willing to activelyh ted cruz and his campaign to make sure that donald trump does not get to 1,237 and then take your chances at the well, look, i don't have any intention of doing anything other than going out across the country and telling people about my terms of whether campaigns
7:09 am
i don't get in the middle of that. i'm not a political operative. i'm a but as the guy on the masthead, you wouldn't be involved in that discussion? >> look, i can tell you, allou about this, matt, is i'm out there running to the president. i'm not out to stop donald trump or stop anybody else. by winning yesterday in dealt him a very, very big blow to being able to have the number of delegates. if you want to talk about mathematics and you want to talk about probability, and really look at it hard -- tell you the biggest probability, they can't win a general election for either of we have. >> let's end on saying ohio. >> i appreciate you guys. came out when hampshire and i said we'd keep going. i appreciate the people of ohio for allowing me to do this.
7:10 am
record, i think we'll rise. god bless our country. >> governor, thank you very much for being with us. on the democratic side, it was a huge night for hillary clinton, as we said. she swept all five contests. a clinching the nomination. clinton used her victory speech to take direct aim at the republican front runner, donald trump. nbc's kristen welker is in on that. good morning. >> good morning to you. secretary clinton wakes up this morning as the strong democratic front runner, afteran last week. she proved last night she can compete in every corner of the country. it was a major blow to senator bernie to the nomination got a whole lot tougher. >> hillary! >> reporter: this morning, hillary clinton celebrating a clean his is another super tuesday for our campaign.

brokered l take place at the same time that trump has done nothing but strengthen himself. there is a disconnect between the conversation the having and the reality. >> the republican establishment died last night. the republican establishment is shockingly willing now to let donald trump be the resigned to it, and they'll focus on trying to hold the house and the senate. >> let me pick up on that. nicolle, we talk about theef at the table. the bargaining, the anger. >> she does it all on a daily >> exactly. >> as our establishment republican, is it acceptance phase? if establishment republicans are saying, we accept it, does that mean we're accepting we're to lose the white house in 2016? >> i think it is a healthy acceptance of the will of the voters. our voters are speaking at the top of their lungs, and they're doing so at the polls, appropriate and civilized place. ted cruz had a terrible night last night.
7:14 am
the republican party start to around him, until he lost everything last night. >> john kasich, he'd been hanging around on the sidelines, mark, for a long time. he steps up and wins his home. does he get some kind of slingshot effect from that, that carries him further? >> i think he has 72 hours to show the establishment and thehat he's a viable person here. his argument about the general election is powerful, but the delegates is more he can't win a majority now, and it'll be up to cruz and kasich to say, they're the stop trump movement. not meetings in not campaign ads. it's not web campaigns. can either of them stop trump? i'm spectacle but they have a >> on the "times" this morning, yes, trump and clinton had big nights last night, but the resounding triumphs matched an reality, most americans
7:15 am
>> the most striking numbers in the exit polls were -- and i look at the battleground states- ohio, florida and north carolina. a full third of republican primary voters, when asked if trump and clinton are the nominees, will you be or consider a third party, over 40% of republicans in ohio said third party. 39% of north carolina republicans said third party. republicans. look, there is an anti-trump appetite out there. there's just no messenger to tap into it. was horrendous last night in his attempt to put the party together. >> thanks for setting me up. i'll say two words. give me your first fast. the two words are paul ryan. >> last gasp. if the convention blows up, he'll be the republican d his window. >> part of what's happening now, acceptance that trump will be
